Welcome to Talitha Kumi Guest House! It is the ideal starting point for individual travellers or groups who want to visit Palestine and experience firsthand the friendliness of its people.
Our guest house is located on the compound of Talitha Kumi School Centre in Beit Jala. With its landscaped setting and being located on the highest elevation in the area of Bethlehem, Talitha Kumi Guest House boasts magnificent views of the surrounding valleys and towns and even Jordan on a clear day.
The Guest House has undergone a major renovation in 2014, making it one of the best guest houses in Bethlehem area. It has been recently awarded with a “Certificate of Excellence” by tripadvisor. Talitha Kumi Guesthouse offers 40 tastefully decorated bedrooms, a buffet restaurant, meeting rooms, a terrace and a cosy guest house lobby.
After your touristic explorations of Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Jericho, or the Dead Sea, our ten-hectare large property covered with woods provides for excellent recreational opportunities. The Guest House’s Lobby offers comfortable seating with relaxing background music for guests to unwind after a busy day and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee as well as soft drinks, beer or wine.
When it comes to meal times, our guests can enjoy traditional Palestinian cuisine prepared by our kitchen staff in the light-filled dining hall.
Our meeting rooms provide all the facilities required to hold a comfortable meeting; projectors, flip charts, tea and coffee facilities, and of course our renowned friendly service. These rooms can also be used for groups staying in the Guest House who want to reflect on their day in the evening or simply have a private gathering for the group.
The Guest House staff will be delighted to organise private excursions of Talitha Kumi School or Bethlehem and surrounding villages so as our guests can soak up all the culture, heritage and history at their own pace, tours can be provided in different languages.
Our Professional and Friendly staff will ensure that your visit to Talitha Kumi Guest House and the Holy Land is a memorable one. All proceeds from your stay at the guesthouse directly help finance Talitha Kumi School.
